I want to share a quick photo tip with you guys that works for any point an shoot camera. How many times have you tried to take a picture but the color comes out all jacked up? This especially happens to the background, and often the colors of the sky or whatever just end up too light. This is because your camera is choosing the exposure based on whatever is closest to you.
Here is the trick:
--first point your camera at the main subject you want in focus and press the shutter halfway down (it's a good idea to pick the brightest or lightest thing that will be in the pic for this)
--you will hear your camera focusing
--once your camera stops making noise and it's ready to take the pic, keep the button pushed halfway down!!
-- recompose your picture the way you actually want it and them press all the way down
Hope that makes sense, it should help you get much nicer pics! Hopefully I will find sometime soon to share several more indepth tips from my photo class, but it is keeping me busy with homework!
